Shiplap “Look” Cabinet Doors

Shiplap Cabinet Doors

If you follow popular interior design trends, you know that shiplap has become a prominent request among homeowners. Due to the increased interest, WalzCraft has added several Signature Series Door Designs inspired by this design trend.

Traditional shiplap is created by installing thin planks of wood with rabbet joinery. WalzCraft’s Shiplap “Look” Doors are a simplified version made to mimic the visual appearance of traditional shiplap. Instead of individual planks, we use Center Panel Face Routing applied horizontally to create this look.

Solid Wood Shiplap Style Panels

When looking for a natural or stained shiplap style door, we suggest pairing one of our simple Shaker, stepped, or beveled Stile and Rail profiles with our RVSCP PR324 Reversed Center Panel. The Reversed Center Panel will have horizontal gain and grooves to simulate the look of wood planks. The S951 Clinton, S958 Beckett, and S959 Kendrick samples showcase some of the recommended profile combinations, along with our CPFR 300 and CPFR 400 Center Panel Face Routs. When selecting a CPFR, you may also choose one of our standard spacing options or specify custom spacing.

S951 Clinton Shiplap Style Door
S951 Clinton

S951 Clinton is an Adventure Series Door with square SR100 Stiles and stepped SR163 Rails. The Center Panel features CPFR 300 grooves with 4 1/2″ Spacing. Sample shown in Straight Grain White Oak with Light American Walnut Stain.

Gray Shiplap Style S958 Beckett Cabinet Door
S958 Beckett

S958 Beckett pairs a clean Shaker Style Cabinet Door with our dark gray Nightfall Combination Stain on Rustic Alder. The center panel has CPFR 400 routs with 3″ spacing.

S959 Kendrick Door with Shiplap Look
S959 Kendrick

S959 Kendrick is a Transitional Style Cabinet Door with a beveled profile and CPFR 300 grooves with 3 3/4″ spacing. Sample features Select Red Birch with a Natural / Clear Coat (No Stain).

Painted Shiplap “Look” Options

If you are looking for a painted Shiplap Style Door, we recommend using our Paint Grade Maple Wood Species with a Recessed or Flat MDF Center Panel. Our S960 Quinn Door is the perfect example of this combination and is finished in our Dove White SolidTone (Paint). Our horizontal CPFR options are a great way to add a little detail to the highly requested white shaker door and pair perfectly with Farmhouse Styling.

3D Laminate (RTF) Shiplap Doors

Our 1-Piece 3D Laminate (RTF) Doors are also available with Center Panel Face Routing, although there are some limitations due to the materials used. The S961 Savvy Signature Series Design pairs one of our popular beveled profiles with a flat panel and CPFR 500 v-grooves. Our sample features the Gauntlet Grey Super Matte Finish.

Nightfall – New Dark Gray Stain

Nightfall V3 Combination Stain

WalzCraft’s Nightfall V3 is a dark gray Combination Stain that covers most of the natural color and highlights the darker wood grain. Our Combination Stains utilize a two-step process starting with toner as the first application and then applying a Wipe Stain. This two-step process creates unique colors with depth.

Color Blocks with Nightfall Stain

Nightfall is shown below on our Natural/Standard Grade Alder, Birch, Cherry, Maple, and Red Oak Wood Species. Nightfall color blocks are available in these Wood Species, as well as Hickory & Soft Maple (not pictured).

COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 WalzCraft Response

(Updated 4/1/2020)

COVID-19 Impact on our Operation

WalzCraft’s office and production teams continue to operate on our regular schedules. We continue to closely monitor the developments related to COVID-19 and the impacts on our employees, community, and industry.  Although this pandemic is very widespread and affecting people and businesses across the globe, WalzCraft is fortunate to be able to continue operating as normal.  Critical infrastructure sectors and the essential workers identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) are exempt from Wisconsin Governor Evers’s “Safer at Home” order, and have been encouraged to remain open.

Specifically, Governor Evers’s Health Order #12 (“Safer at Home Order”) incorporates, by reference, CISA’s list of essential businesses. The Safer at Home Order specifically states that “any business or worker identified” in the CISA Memorandum dated March 23, 2020 is an essential business or operation (Section 13.a.). The CISA Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response recognizes WalzCraft’s workforce and operations as being an essential business under multiple categories:

“Workers who support the manufacture and distribution of forest products, including, but not limited to timber, paper, and other wood products.” (Under Agricultural industries)

“Workers who support the supply chain of building materials from production through application/installation, including cabinetry… and employees who provide services that enable repair materials and equipment for essential functions.” (Under Commercial Facilities)

“Workers performing housing construction related activities to ensure additional units can be made available to combat the nation’s existing housing supply shortage.” (Under Residential/Shelter Facilities and Services)

WalzCraft manufactures custom cabinet components for residential and commercial cabinet/casework manufacturers, residential and commercial contractors, and cabinet refacers across North America.  The vast majority of our cabinet doors, drawer boxes, molding, veneers, and plywood casework components are composed of wood and/or wood based panels (MDF, Melamine, etc.).  WalzCraft products are used in, but not limited to, single and multifamily housing (including dormitories), commercial and office buildings, schools, and many other applications.

We continue to produce products in our regular wait times with a goal of minimizing any disruption to our customers’ businesses. We appreciate your loyalty and patience as we all work through these unprecedented times together.

COVID-19 Impact on your Business

If this pandemic has temporarily affected your business’s ability to operate or to receive shipments, and you currently have an order in house with us, please fill out the COVID-19 Shipment Receiving Status Form  or contact the WalzCraft Customer Support Team via phone or email. We will work with you to find a solution.

COVID-19 Shipment Receiving Status

Due to the pandemic, freight and small package carriers are requiring that we confirm our customers will be available to receive orders upon shipping.

To WalzCraft Customers…

The unparalleled impacts of COVID-19 have and continue to impact countless people in our communities both directly and indirectly. WalzCraft is taking ongoing actions to ensure that we can safely continue to be here for you and meet the cabinet component needs of you and your customers. The safety of our employees, customers, suppliers, and community is our top priority.

In addition to our routine cleaning and sanitizing procedures, we have implemented further preventative practices and safety precautions set forth by the CDC and Wisconsin Department of Health. Social distancing has shown to be an effective way of stopping the spread of the virus. Social distancing measure are promoted and incorporated in the workplace, and where feasible, employees are working remotely.

As a supplier to small and medium sized businesses, we understand the importance of delivering on commitments. We do not take your business for granted and appreciate your loyalty. We are committed to doing everything that we can to keep your orders running on schedule to allow you to fulfill your obligations.

KBIS 2019 Recap

Snow in Las Vegas? Absolutely! The Kitchen & Bath Industry’s largest trade event, KBIS in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show (IBS), was immersed one evening in a spectacular snow globe during this year’s show held on February 18-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The snow didn’t dampen the biggest show in a decade with more than 100,000 people attending throughout the week.

WalzCraft joined over 2100 exhibitors setting the show floor abuzz with what’s new, what’s now and what’s next for the building and kitchen/bath industry? Trends point to the transitional styles of today and simplistic styles of tomorrow in kitchen and bath design, but WalzCraft believes it is especially important to look beyond trends right to the consumer, being aware there will not be “one size fits all.”

Our Customers are as diverse as our product offerings, so WalzCraft continues to create inspired designs showing over 50 unique styles and finishes from our Signature Series Brochure displayed in our Designer-centric show booth. Visitors had the opportunity to learn, what’s new? Highlighting WalzCraft’s new Stonehenge diverse gray stain finish. What’s now? The clean lines of veneered slab doors with an outside edge applied molding. What’s next? Partnering with WalzCraft to receive the finest quality product and friendliest Customer Service.

The WalzCraft team enjoyed meeting new and existing customers, thank you for taking the time to stop in and see us at KBIS. We hope you felt confident in learning WalzCraft is your single source cabinet component supplier. We look forward to working with you in 2019 and promise you’ll always hear a friendly voice when you call.

To celebrate manufacturing month, WalzCraft, in partnership with Western Technical College, The Upper Mississippi Manufacturing Alliance, and The Western Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, provided free tours to the public.

On October 2nd, 2017 at 9 am we welcomed 25 people into our facility. After a brief safety meeting, they broke up into 3 smaller groups and took in-depth tours of our 340,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant.

During the tour, they learned about the products we make, the technology we use, and the production process from start to finish.

Rotary Mill Mark Distressing

Over the past few years the requests for a weathered barn wood “look” have grown and don’t seem to be slowing down. We are happy to announce that we’ve added Rotary Mill Mark Distressing as an option to our catalog. This new distressing method has the look of rough circular sawn lumber that is often seen in reclaimed barn wood.

Rotary Mill Mark distressing is available on Cabinet Doors, Drawer Fronts, Face Frames, Panels and more. This distressing method is applied prior to assembly to ensure no two pieces are the same, making the finished product truly one-of-a-kind.

Products are available unfinished or prefinished with our Wiping, Spray No Wipe and Combination Stains, or our SolidTone WoodGrain Finish. Add one of our glazing options to enhance the texture.

Pictured to the right are three examples of stain applied to White Oak (Natural / Standard Grade) Cabinet Doors with Rotary Mill Mark Distressing. Finishes shown are English Oak V3 Combination Stain (top), Light American Walnut Wiping Stain with Cream Dry Wiped Glaze (middle) & Brown Oak Wiping Stain with Brown Solvent Wiped Glaze (bottom).

All Cabinet Doors pictured are Style 10 with SR100 – 3″ Stiles & Rails, RVSCP-PR324 Reverse Center Panel and D33 Outside Edge.
